Using Custom Temporary Files Folder

NOTE: This feature was added in Simplebim 10.0 SR1

By default Simplebim writes temporary files into the following folder in the user’s profile.

C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Temp\Datacubist\SimplebimDeveloper1\Simplebim10

However, there can be scenarios where this is not desirable and it is possible to set a custom folder for the temporary files.

Place an XML file with the following content and the file extension .config into a sub folder of the Configuration sub folder of the Simplebim installation folder. For example:

C:\Program Files\Datacubist\Simplebim 10\Configuration\TempFolder\CustomTemporaryFilesFolder.config

Please note that you have to create the Configuration sub folder if it is missing.
